About Karema El-Hawary

Steve and Yumi live in Chiswick, West London with their daughter Yvie. Steve runs an HR Consultancy and Yumi works for Virgin Atlantic. We spend our time between England, Japan and Portugal.

Karema El-Hawary purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Karema El-Hawary chose Vilamoura

For us it is perfect. The development is a little oasis and having the hotel, with restaurants and bars so close is a nice little bonus. Faro is close by and is a lovely little city, whilst Quarteira 'feels' very Portuguese, compared to Vilamoura which is OK but very touristy. When we were looking at apartments, Vilasol was head and shoulders above other developments in the area.

What makes this apartment unique

Well that depends on what you are looking for but for us, we like the roof terrace which gives you a wonderful feeling of space and a great view of the stars. The perfect chill out. There is an excellent supermarket, Pingo Dolce, about five minutes drive away. Taxis are cheap so you don't really need to hire a car. However, if you have a car, so many places are within easy reach, it really feels like it’s right in the middle of everything (Faro, Quarteira, Vilamoura, Loule). With the main highway only about 5 minutes drive away, you also have quick access along the coast either East or West. Back to the apartment, we particularly like the underground car park. There’s nothing worse than having to get into a steaming hot car! Plus, we now have wifi, perfect!

Fantastic apartment with all the amenities for a family

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 and we all greatly enjoyed our stay in your apartment. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The resort ideal for families. We enjoyed several meals out at both Wildfire and Oscars. We would highly recommend the apartment.

Fabulous property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property with everything you could ask for. Very spacious with lovely rooftop for sunbathing. Couch uncomfortable for sleeping as could feel all wooden slats. Needs some extra foam that could be rolled up and put away when not in use. We used two mattresses from sunbeds which was fine. Definitely need car as away from everywhere for walking. Manager was to meet us on arrival but when we rang from airport he told us key was left in box beside door which meant we had to drive around looking for our block. This had nothing to do with owners and if you are looking for a really lovely apt and have a car this is definitely the place to book
